The gentleman had severe pain in the lateral leg for over a year. He was diagnosed with an entrapment of the common peroneal nerve as well as the lateral sural nerve. Diagnostic nerve blocks were performed to help confirm this. He was then taken to the operating room for a decompression surgery to remove all the sites of compression from the common peroneal nerve, lateral sural nerve, and the lateral cutaneous nerve to the calf. He is doing very well with complete resolution of his pain in the leg at three weeks from surgery. He is back to full activities.
